What Is Conscious Uncoupling?
Conscious uncoupling is the act of ending a marriage or relationship in a way that is viewed by both parties as a positive step. This is often done with the resolve to remain friends, co-parent if there are children, and possibly continue to love one other. Usually, conscious uncoupling occurs in partners who mutually agree upon ending their relationship and wish to enter the process in an intentional and thoughtful way that keeps their self-esteem intact.
Instead of becoming enemies, these couples become partners in this journey and even teachers to one another. They are able to pursue a sense of wholeness as they transition to the next stage in their lives.
